Cyberpositive :: 1995

0rphan Drift Archive

0(rphan)d(rift>)cyberpositive is an experimental sci fi novel, collectively authored by a group of asked and unasked contributors and edited by OD's Maggie Roberts. It was published in 1995 with support from Nick Land and Cabinet Editions, serving as our manifesto and as the catalogue for the debut exhibition of the same name. It came together in the spirit of much of our visual work, bringing together processes of sampling and looping as well as the Burroughs cut up technique, referring to a breakdown and reordering of language from a post apocalyptic POV.

Books can be purchased through the Cabinet Gallery, London
